It's been a while since I installed an AM resin pit… and I soon realised why…..

i. That sickly smell…..

ii. Sometimes the fit leaves much to be desired.

I started off following the BB suggestion, to trim the resin casting block such that it would "fit".

Well by the time, I was done, the floor of the resin pit looked like this…. :(

Fortunately, that is quickly dealt with with some plastic card

Actually, it was pretty much plain sailing after this….;)

The next part was hacking off the back plate of the cockpit, to install their nice resin detail

To ensure that it was secure, I added a strip of plastic card

The next was was to remove the front cockpit coaming….. same procedure as last year….;)

Then adding the display and base (secured with plastic sprue)

The ejection seat needed to be trimmed to fit….

And then the cockpit sides were added

Good start.

Plasticard is your friend.

Cheers,

Thanks Jamme!

 

I think this will be a slower build…. am debating whether I should scribe and rivet or not…..;)
